Discussion: Strategic planning with HR planning

Team D selected Target Corporation to create a strategic HRM plan. This memo will summarize the assessments and evaluation measure directives Target plans to implement to measure divisional effectiveness.
Targets strategic human resources department integrates strategic planning with HR planning. The planning process deploys activities that enable Target to achieve company goals and objectives. The planning process prepares Target to address competition, supply and demand, innovation, social concerns, and external and internal trends.
Target uses a benchmarking process to identify the company’s best practices, productivity, efficiencies, training, hiring practices, and management of employees. Once target collects the data the company uses the information to compare the company’s practice and performance with the company’s competitors. Target plans to create a team to collect data from competition as well as its own company. The team will also compare the data to determine gaps. The gaps identify the differences between the company itself and the competitions company. The benchmarking team determines the causes of difference and then uses that information to determine the best practices to remain profitable and competitive.

Measuring metrics
In order to evaluate their performance, firms need to establish a set of parameters that focus on the “desired outcomes” of strategic planning, as well as the metrics they will use to monitor how well the firm delivers against those outcomes. Because strategic management is ultimately aimed at creating a competitive advantage, many firms evaluate their performance against other firms.

We have ranked as the fourth highest-ranking company according to a survey by Forrester in 2012. In the survey of over 7,000 consumers they were asked questions about their interactions with 14 different industries within the last 90 days. In the retail segment of the survey, Target ranked ahead of Amazon, Costco, JC Penney, and Walmart. We have gained the competitive advantage in three major areas. Ease of doing business, effectively meeting their needs, and being enjoyable to do business with.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument
